Hmm...I think it would be difficult to get mplayer to show the lyrics.  You'd 
probably have to set them as subtitles, but I think mplayer will need some 
video before it will display them (maybe generate blank video on the fly?)

Mine doesn't, I'm not sure about the others (there's one, maybe two others.)  
I think running Timidity from the command line *might* show them.
